The focus of September Crown is, of course, the Crown Tournament
itself. However, it is also the Kingdom Event where the Equestrian
Champion of An Tir will be chosen in a grueling set of trials that
will test both horse and rider as many strive to carry the Kingdom
Lance of Championship. To make this an even more magnificent event,
the Kingdom Protector (An Tir Kingdom Archery Champion) will
undergo trials to determine who will defend the Kingdom with their
Other Hand-To-Hand Combat / Martiallate Activities (Fighting)
will include the Squires' Tournament and Magnificent Feats of
Rapier (including Cut-And-Thrust). Come witness fighters in heavy
armor attack each other ferociously to defend the honour of their
inspiration. Watch the fighters of the Renaissance fight each other
with deadly skill with finer arts of the rapier duel.
Range Combat and Competition: In another arena the best archers
in the land will compete for the highest scores on the archery
ranges, as they vie to be named Kingdom Protector (Kingdom Archery
Champion). Next to the archery ranges will be Thrown Weapons, where
those who specialize in the thrown axes, hatchets and knives will
demonstrate their skill. If the fates allow, there will also be a
demonstration of a ballista built by members of the Barony of
Dragon's Laire. It will be a breath-taking demonstration of truly
The Arts and Sciences of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance
will be on full display in the Artisans and Craftsman's Village.
There are already plans for a Culinary Play Area, an 'All Things
Fiber' tent, and a Pottery Shop. This is in addition to tents
available for sitting and visiting with fellow artisans. The
Kingdom Costumers Guild are also planning activities.
Music and the Bardic Arts - Listen as musicians wander
the site playing music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance on
instruments that were played in that time period. Story-tellers
will enchant the crowds as they tell the stories of the ages, and
of the modern re-created ages. There may also be demonstrations of
dancing from the period in stages specially set-up on site to
show-case the dancing styles of the time.
